    I think its time to, a simple badge would be nice something with "XF" in it so you see in one go.

    Would be awesome if the other paid software made an API to.

    Indeed it would. It would be nice to be able to offer that for all members and all forum software, so they know that they are helping licensed users.

    I agree, use the tools available. Just because other vendors don't offer a validation check, don't mean we should not use it.

    Any news on this? I seem to be distinctly lacking in spiffy banners!

    Edit: Oh, I see this has been brought up again recently, and replied to. No worries, I can wait.

    We decided to forego the spiffy banners and go with a more subtle indicator, visible only to staff members and members of the validated XF license group. :)

    Ah, I see it now. Well, that works, I suppose, although it's not exactly spiffy.

    It's quite subtle and nice that only other validated users will see it. The implementation with XF conditionals brilliantly ends the endless argument as for TAZ showing preferential consideration to XF. Nicely done. :tup:

    It appears that you are already licensed according to our database. You do not need to revalidate.

    But never got the custom banner?

    Sure you did, look in the top right of your postbit. See the little dot, that means you are verified. :)

    It's the small blue dot, top/right of the avatar area.
